The Umbrella Academy trailer has just been released. The fight between superheroes promises to be daunting.
It’s almost time to find the heroes ofUmbrella Academy ! A few weeks before the release of season 3, Netflix just shared a first trailer that says a lot about what the plot has in store for us. There is heavy.
After saving humanity from a second apocalypse in the 1960s, Klaus, Vanya, Luther, Five and Allison finally return home. They discover with amazement that their little time travel has had serious consequences: their reality has been altered. In their place, children seem to form a new team of superheroes under the leadership of Reginald Hargreeves. This is the Sparrow Academy, a group of young adults with extraordinary powers who should establish themselves as the main antagonists of this season.
The experience must already be confusing for our heroes, who will also have to deal with a return that is unexpected to say the least. Ben, the adorable ghost who follows Klaus like his shadow, seems to have survived in this reality. However, he will not be as warm as usual. These new images are also essentially centered on fights between the different characters.
A temporal paradox and a third apocalypse
The Umbrella Academy seems to have a certain habit of finding themselves in delicate situations. As if two apocalypses weren’t enough, they still have to prevent another. Note also that these new images do not yet explain the Vanya’s identity change. A few weeks ago, Netflix had formalized the transition of the character camped by Eliott Page. The transgender coming out of the actor visibly inspired the screenwriters, who decided to include this component in the plot.
Vanya therefore becomes Viktor, and the series should explore this notion over the episodes. But the time is not yet for explanations. We can nevertheless confirm that the series will deviate a little more from the comics imagined by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bà. It remains to be seen whether the result will live up to our expectations.
In the cast, we will find Elliot Page, Tom Hopper and David Castaneda respectively in the skin of Vanya-Viktor, Luther and Diego Hargreeves. Aiden Gallagher and Robert Sheehan will reprise their roles as Number 5 and Klaus, as will Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison).
As for the newcomers, we will welcome Britne Oldford who embodies Fei or Genesis Rodriguez in the skin of Sloane. Jake Epstein, Cazzie David, Justin Cornwell and Javon Walton will also be there.
The cast also includes some recurring roles from Season 2, namely Yusuf Gatewood who played Allison Hargreeves’ husband and Marin Ireland who was Vanya’s lover.
Appointment on June 22 to discover these new episodes.
